Quotes of the Times:                                                                                                            

“Our form of government is one based wholly on the will of the people… the state is free from all control of the churches… all these principles have been formally condemned by Rome.”  The Independent, New York, June 12, 1913.


“What the world had not seen for ages; a church without a pope, and a state without a king.”  Hon. J. A. Bingham, member House of Representatives, 1850’s.


“If the liberties of the American people are ever destroyed, they will fall by the hands of the Romish [Catholic] clergy.”  Marquis de La Fayette (known as Lafayette), French General who fought for America in the Revolutionary War.


“A conspiracy against the liberties of this Republic is now in full action, under the direction of the wily Prince Metternich of Austria, who knowing the impossibility of obliterating this troublesome example of a great and free nation by force of arms, is attempting to accomplish his object through the agency of an army of Jesuits.”  Samuel B. Morse (inventor of Morse Code). 


The United States of America was a state without a pope and a state without a king – this is what made it dangerous to all states that were ruled by popes and kings.  The United States was a nation that dared to create a ‘Government of the people, by the people, for the people’ – and if it was allowed to continue (in its original form) it would ultimately mean the destruction of all autocratic powers.  This is why the popes and kings of the earth were determined to destroy America before it destroyed them.

At the Congress of Vienna (1814, 1815), the task of destroying America was given to the Jesuits.  Some Americans were quick to see the danger.  When the Jesuits were restored in 1814, one of the first to alert the Americans of their plight was Samuel Morse.  He hurriedly produced his own book about the Jesuits, and in a letter he wrote:


“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, is very particular and very horrible.  Their restoration is indeed a step towards darkness, cruelty, perfidy, despotism, death… I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits.  If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of Loyola’s.”   J. E. C. Shepherd, The Babington Plot, Wittenburg Publications, Toronto, 1987), p.18, quoting Morse’s letter, dated May 5, 1816.


One hundred years later, America was still being warned about what the true purposes of the Congress of Vienna were.  In 1916 Senator Robert L. Owen, caused the following statement to be placed in in the Congressional Record of April 25th which shows clearly he thought the primary target of the ‘Holy Alliance’ (the ‘united nations’ participating at the Congress of Vienna), was the United States:

“The Holy Alliance having destroyed popular government in Spain, and in Italy, had well-laid plans also to destroy popular government in the American Colonies which had revolted from Spain and Portugal in Central and South America under the influence of the successful example of the United States.”

Originally, America was alert and aware of the danger.  An early attempt to mitigate the influence of Jesuit power, and the autocratic powers that backed them, was the Munro Doctrine – proclaimed by President Munro in 1827.  Basically, the Munro doctrine said to the world at large: “You stay in your back yard and we will stay in ours.”  In other words, America was saying to the European colonial powers and the Jesuits, if you come over here (to the Western Hemisphere), it will mean war.  America was drawing a line in the sand, it was proclaiming that it would defend its constitution and its way of life, and that it was willing (and able) to extend its protection to the whole western hemisphere.

The Munro doctrine was a direct challenge to the interests, aspirations and to the very existence of the European autocratic powers.  [They could not allow republican and democratic principles to spread to Central and Southern America – it would have been a death sentence for their own political systems].  Therefore, from their point of view, it was even more imperative that America should be destroyed.

Few people recognize the American Civil War for what it really was.  Most people think it was a war about slavery – and it was – but that is not the true cause of the war.  A deeper analysis turns up the issue of state’s rights, [the right of each state in the union to govern themselves, with the minimum interference from the Federal Government].  The issue of state’s rights was also a major cause of the war – but it too is not the root cause of the worst war in American history.  The real origin of the Civil War lies in the hostility of the European autocratic powers and their ‘attack dogs’ the Jesuits.  They used the issues of state’s rights and slavery in an attempt to destroy America.

The Plan was to break the United States into two separate and two antagonistic nations [thereby being able to play one off against the other].  This effort to divide the nation into two was the classic ploy of ‘divide and conquer’ – this has been the policy used for centuries by all tyrannical and empirical powers to defeat their enemies and extend their conquests.  [Still used today of course – how convenient it is that the Moslem world is divided into Sunni and Shia factions].

Abraham Lincoln was well aware of the true nature and the true causes of the American Civil War, he said:  “We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons…”  Quoted by, Charles Chiniquy, Fifty Years In The Church of Rome, originally pub. 1886, p. 296.  Lincoln was Charles Chiniquy’s lawyer (before he became president).  Chiniquy was a Catholic priest who ran afoul of the Jesuits.  The Jesuits framed Chiniquy and tried to destroy him.  Lincoln defended Chiniquy in court and succeeded in exposing the Jesuits.  Lincoln and Chiniquy became fast friends – and the Jesuits became Lincoln’s ruthless enemies.

When Lincoln was assassinated Chiniquy wrote:  “I come fearlessly today before the American people to say and prove that the President Abraham Lincoln, was assassinated by the priests and Jesuits of Rome.”  Ibid, p. 512.  Chiniquy lamented the fact that the Catholic orchestration of Lincoln’s death was concealed from the American public.  For example, all the main perpetrators were Catholic, known for their regular meetings with Catholic priests.  It is well known that John Wilkes Booth pulled the trigger, but what is not well known is that John Surratt was the leader of the plot.  John Surratt escaped to Canada, where he was sheltered by the Catholic Church.  Surratt eventually escaped all the way to the Vatican in Rome, where he became a soldier in the papal army.  [At this point in time the Catholic Church still possessed the Papal States, and the Pope had an army to protect his territory].  Surratt eventually returned to the United States and he was put on trial for his role in the murder of Lincoln, but he was acquitted.  [Another thing that Chiniquy lamented was the fact that even in his own time, fear of the Jesuits had already permeated the corridors of power in Washington D.C., he wrote: “I saw with a profound distress, that the influence of Rome was almost supreme in Washington.  I could not find a single statesman who would dare to face the nefarious influence and fight it down.”  Ibid. p. 517].

Whilst America was embroiled in the civil war, the European powers were conspiring to break up the Union, by intervening on the side of the Confederate States.  The French invaded Mexico and set up a European style monarchy there [complete with imported royalty from Austria].  The plan was for the French to invade the United States [on the side of the Confederacy], and for the British to do the same from Canada.  The Pope was willing to help too.  He wrote a letter to Jefferson Davis, the Confederate President, indicating openly which side he supported.  As a result of this letter, 100,000 Catholic soldiers deserted the Union and joined the Southern Confederacy.

Lincoln did two things to counteract the great danger that he found himself in.  The first thing he did was to free the slaves.  [Lincoln never wanted to free the slaves during the war because that would only have exacerbated the Confederate resistance].  The reason he freed the slaves during the war was because this action (the Proclamation of Emancipation), made it virtually impossible for the European powers to intervene.  [Slavery was very unpopular in Europe – popular pressure had only recently won abolition there – it was a huge political issue].  “The conversion of the struggle into a crusade against slavery made intervention (by Britain and France) impossible.”  Encyclopedia Britannica, Art. United States of America, vol. 22, p. 767.

The second thing that Lincoln did was to write a letter to the Tsar of Russia.  When the American ambassador presented the letter to the Tsar, without even opening the letter the Tsar said: “whatever is in this letter, we grant.”  As a result of the letter, the Russians sent naval forces to the east and west coasts of America.  As a result the belligerent European powers, now realized that intervention in America would mean war, not just with the Union but with Russia as well.  Both of these actions by Lincoln were enough, to force the Europeans to back down.  The Union was saved – the Jesuits had failed.

However, the Jesuits do not do failure.  If something does not work, they simply change tactics.  If the quick remedy (the Civil War) did not work, then they will change tactics and use the long term remedy.  And the long term remedy was/is education.  The Jesuits already had a reputation for being the best educationalists:  “They quickly became and for two centuries remained the schoolmasters par excellence of Catholic Europe.”   Encyclopedia Britannica, vol. 19, 1963, p. 434.  Building on this reputation they quickly established themselves as the ‘schoolmasters par excellence’ in America as well.  The Jesuits now have an extensive network of schools in America, specializing in tertiary education.  These schools are having a profound effect on the Catholicization of America.  For example, the prestigious University of Georgetown (founded 1789) in Washington D.C. is ‘the place to go’ for all those with aspirations for high government service, especially in the diplomatic corps – Georgetown is a Jesuit school – (Bill Clinton is a graduate).

Apart from owning and operating prestigious educational institutions the Jesuits have infiltrated the whole educational system.  As early as the beginning of the twentieth century, they were firmly at the center of education in America.  In 1928, Senator Thomas E. Watson, was one of the few to spot the danger and issue a warning:


“In the public schools the Catholics have stealthily introduced textbooks written by Jesuits; and your children are being taught that the Roman church was misunderstood in the past; that it’s doctrines are not fatal to humanity and gospel religion; that its record is not saturated with the blood of innocent millions, murdered by Papal persecutors, and that there never was such a monstrosity as the alleged sale of papal pardons of sins.”   Roman Catholics in America Falsifying History and Poisoning the Minds of Protestant School Children, p. 5.  Senator Thomas E. Watson.


At this point we have only given an extremely brief outline of Jesuit influence in America (brevity requires it so).  Unfortunately, in addition to education, other areas of American life such as business and finance, government and politics, the military and intelligence agencies – these have all been infiltrated by the Jesuits and are heavily influenced by them.  If there is one individual person in the American system, who would be best positioned and best qualified to understand and ‘feel’ their influence, it would be the President of the United States.  Therefore, the words of President Woodrow Wilson (1913-1921), are especially relevant, and equally chilling:


“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”


To be continued…

Historical Note:

One of the main reasons why the Tsar of Russia was so willing to assist Lincoln and America, during the Civil War, was because his predecessor was the only leader at the Congress of Vienna, who recognized what the Jesuits were up to, and he would not co-operate with them.  When the Civil War was over, the Russians sold Alaska to the United States for $7.2 million (about 2c an acre).  In the America of 1867, it was considered a very bad deal – it was called ‘Seward’s folly’ (after the then Secretary of State who negotiated the treaty).  In reality it had a geo-political, anti-British purpose behind it, but the ‘favourable terms’ towards Russia was also a ‘thank you’ arrangement between America and Russia, for the Russian naval assistance during the war.


Ultimately, the constant Russian opposition to Jesuitism cost it dearly – it resulted in the destruction of Tsarist Russia and in particular the elimination of the Romanov family (the Tsarist family), in the Communist Revolution of 1917.  Communist theory dictated that the Communist Revolution would always begin with the most developed industrial nations.  But Russia was the least developed of the industrial nations.  So why did the Communist Revolution begin in Russia?  It began in Russia, because the Jesuits were eliminating one of their greatest opponents.  Such is the fate of all who are not ‘team players.’


Extra Note:  There are a total of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities, and 2 Jesuit theological schools in the United States.  They are all organized under an umbrella organization called, ‘The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities.’
